Badges and Patches

What’s that? You’ve always wanted to…

Make your own movie, cook food from a different country, go geocaching, sleep under the stars, write a book of short stories, plant a garden?

Invent something new, paint a masterpiece, star in a play, take amazing nature photographs, make your bedroom into a jungle, run a business, go on an adventure trip?

Become an awesome babysitter,  sew yourself a dress,  build a wooden bench,  learn to play a musical instrument, or design a website?

Great news! You can learn to do all these things and earn Girl Scout badges as you go. 

Want to earn a badge by learning something else entirely? We’ve got you covered with our Make Your Own badge option. Just figure out what you want to learn and who can help you, then go online to create a badge of your own design.

GSCTX Council's Own Badges

Council’s Own badges are national awards that provide unique, local opportunities that girls cannot experience anywhere else! As most of our girls know, Central Texas has a wide variety of awesome experiences that are exclusive to our region of the country. To take advantage of that, we offer girls new and exciting opportunities to learn and develop skills beyond the National Proficiency Badges.
